You have a set of Hotchkis sway bars, likely the sport set and a set of the TRD lowering springs. Congrats!

Are those the TRD wheels too? Oh, and pick up the APR Strut Bar from the e-celica store. Can't beat the price.

Hotchis sway bars go for around $400 new. TRD springs are around $250 new. Don't really know what the wheels are, but you probably just saved $650 in mods that you might have done down the road. Hotchis makes excellent sway bars for our cars also, and TRD springs give a nice ride height and comfort. You got nice and lucky!
